Wigmore is most epic. No need for Shannon me thinks unless of course that money in your bank is burning a hole to get out

I think it's best to have someone do it for you: s/he places a pencil or ruler along where your toes would bend naturally, then you bend your toes as much as they go.
When I've done it alone, I've used a stiff card like a credit card. But I don't think I do it well.

Others would know more. I think Etutee posted about this on the LL, and I know DWFII has here.

The Bensons arrived today and they look beautiful! I'm waiting for some better weather to take some pictures. I just discovered they're called balmoral monks smile.gif

 

They say "Somewhere out there is a pair of shoes with your name on it" - "they" were right!

 

Edit: Screw the weather! Pics are up at http://gezzaseyes.tumblr.com/post/38689670566/a-fine-pair-of-shoes-x-alfred-sargent-benson

Walked around NYC in my Millers today (third wearing) and they are breaking in nicely. Walked from Grand Central up to RL Mansion and back again, hitting some of the after Christmas shopping.

I am very pleased with the boots and the fit of the 724 Last in the E width ( I went down from the F width I had used on the Moore I ordered last spring.)

I would definitely consider other options in the 724 - a great square toed last that seems to fit me great.

I like it overall. It is very reminiscent of the C&J Northcote. Although I am not keen on shell anymore; double burnished oak calf is a better possibility.
